High-Throughput Reaction Discovery

Organic Chemistry: Method lets chemists study thousands of transformations simultaneously
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: reaction discovery, high-throughput

Thanks to a new approach, chemists can now run thousands of experiments with the hope of finding new coupling transformations, all in just a matter of days. The high-throughput method allows researchers to vary catalysts, ligands, and mul­tiple substrates all at one time using simple laboratory equipment and mass spectrometry analysis (Science, DOI: 10.1126/sci ence.1207922).

“It’s very simple,” says University of California, Berkeley, chemistry . . .
